BILLY JOEL: Sells Long Island Beachfront House
The beachfront home in Sagaponack was originally built by the late actor Roy Scheider.
Looks like the third time’s the charm for Billy Joel. Long Island’s Newsday reports that the Piano Man finally sold his beachfront home in Sagaponack, New York for $19 million.
That’s a bit of a markdown — Billy listed it in June for $19,950,000. But it’s well below the $23.5 million he asked for in 2009.
The house was built by the late Jaws star Roy Scheider. Billy purchased the four-story 5500-square-foot home with 145 feet of beachfront in 2007.
